You're already using social media sites like Facebook and Twitter to chat with friends and family. You're using LinkedIn to post content that your business colleagues and customers will find interesting.

You've probably also heard about, or signed up for, social media app Instagram. Instagram is a fun site with 300 million users that's owned by Facebook. You can use it to post pictures or videos, right from your smartphone. And, if you do it right, you can make money.

Post a picture of your feet in the sand with the message, "Vacationing in Maui," and suddenly your dozens or thousands of followers know exactly what you're doing. But how can you turn that into cash?

Thousands of people like you are doing just that by promoting and selling company's products. Other people are taking some of the $1 billion that companies like Sony, Tommy Hilfiger and J. Crew spend on Instagram's brand ambassadors. (More on that in a minute.)

Of course, at Komando.com, we've got a simple step-by-step guide to get you started. Ready to make some money?
